Score 9.0/10
Good points:
* Lots of power in a tiny package.
* It's stylish looks mean it doesn't look out of place in a modern TV stand.
* Comes with an excellent, high quality keyboard with built-in tracker ball.
* Also comes with an equally excellent and high quality MCE remote control.
* Can play 720p and 1080i movies stutter-free.
* Somehow manages to cram a standard 3.5" computer hard disk inside which means if you're confident with computers, you could increase internal data storage capacity from the standard 250GB to 1TB. Other internal-parts are also user-replaceable.
* Lots of USB ports.
Bad points:
* Lack of built-in IR receiver for the remote control. Instead you must use the supplied bulky receiver that has a USB connection.
* When the DVD-RW drive can't play a bad sector on a DVD, it spins up incredibly fast and loud and will continue to do so until you manually eject the disk.
* DVD-RW drive is the same type you get in laptops (you click disks into a fragile tray) and feels a bit out of place in a stylish device like this. A slot loading drive would've been much nicer.
* Although the spec is adequate for its most likely intended uses, a faster processor would've made this better value as it could do with a bit more juice to make 1080p movies watchable.
